(Sorry, I deleted the thread you've responded to. Use this thread.)

Re: So are you saying that the download helper add-on would allow it to be saved to desktop?
Download Helper is here:
http://www.downloadhelper.net/

What I am NOT saying is, how to use your computer, where and how you save and use files d/l from web sites, and how you organize them on your computer. I AM saying Download Helper does the job.

Yes, I can save d/l video files to my Desktop, when I'm using Download Helper to save FLV flash video lessons from Khan Academy web site.

Thanks. I'm trying the add-on thing, and ... progress report ... it's been going for 20 minutes on the same file and says 19 minutes remaining. How does that compare to your time in the States? (Don't laugh.)

Btw they give two standard DL options, it seems. The tab by the YouTube video that says "download" redirects to the archives, but for me, it just freezes and hangs there. (We typically just buffer and play.) There's also a section of the site called "downloads" that sends you to what seems to be the whole shootin' match in zip form or something.

I mentioned before, when I play my MP4 videos, I use my QuickTime player.

• So, you can d/l and save a given Khan Academy lesson from their website. The source will be the embedded YouTube video, in FLV format, a.k.a. flash video. Use Firefox w/ Download Helper to save this file. The Uploader has allowed permission for this. If the Uploader has NOT granted permission for d/l, notice that Download Helper is disabled. Once you save this file, you can playback on your computer with WinAmp.

• Or, you can d/l and save a given Khan Academy lesson from The Archive. The source will be the mpeg4 video, in MP4 format. I Use Firefox and I right-click to save this file, from the Individual Files / Movie File section. The Uploader has allowed permission for this. Read their Creative Commons permission. Once you save this file, you can playback with Apple's free QuickTime player. Download free QuickTime player for Windows.

For the time being, on my computer, my WinAmp player can't play MP4 files in video mode, just the audio. My FLV files play video and audio fine in WinAmp. So in my case, I'm using QuickTime player for my MP4 playbacks.

I suggest you d/l and install Apple's QuickTime player. Once you have, you can right-click on your Desktop MP4 icon (for the Khan lesson you d/l from The Archive), and select "Open With" from there. Then Choose QuickTime player from there. This will force the MP4 to play back in QuickTime. This is what I'm doing.
